According to psychic reporters on the scene, Obama’s initial instinct to swat the fly was quickly outweighed by his conscience, which called for a moralistic reevaluation of the situation. The commander-in-chief then...read more
Yes, unfortunately you did read that correctly. On the night of September 3, 2014, President Eli Capilouto informed reporters at the Colonel of his plan to “launch those hooligans into space.” He may or may not have been drunk at the time, but the truth is uncertain, as our reporter may or may not have been drunk at the time. Operation Blue Moon will begin in earnest during the fall semester and is expected to earn acclaim for being the...read more

1. Everything is in numbered bullets, because who has the attention span for paragraphs? 2. The font is just weird enough and just big enough to make you uncomfortable. 3. In an attempt to use the highest titular number possible, the writer has split a single thought… 4. …into multiple points. 5. GIFS! 6. The grammar and spelling isn’t the graetest. It’s not terribly, but it’s not well. 7. There’s an extremely obscure reference to...read more
In a shocking new study published this week, the Federal Agency Investigating Lights, or FAIL, shares some shocking data that shows a direct correlation between red lights shining in various places above roadways and drivers applying the brake pedal, sometimes even so much that the vehicle comes to a complete stop. “It’s important to remember that correlation does not imply causation,” said FAIL leader Tricia Martin. “There is definitely...read more

It is hard to believe that the accommodations at Sochi have not been well regarded by the other reporters and visitors to the city. I found the city to be very comfortable and interesting. We arrived three days before the opening ceremony and were received by the nicest hotel staff. They told us that if the water came back on we shouldn’t use it, as it contained poisons. How nice! They shut off the water, which was surely tampered...read more
